Driver charged with obstructing justice

A 25-year-old Evanston man was arrested in connection with obstructing justice after officers stopped his car Thursday.

Police stopped the man near the intersection of Clark Street and Sherman Avenue for failing to use a turn signal Thursday afternoon, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

The man claimed he did not have his license on him and gave the officers a fake name and date of birth, Dugan said. Officers said they realized the information was false when the man provided an age that did not match the date of birth he previously gave them.

The man was charged with obstruction of identification, failure to signal a right turn and driving with a suspended license. He is scheduled to appear in court March 3.

Front door of church damaged

Unknown burglars broke into the Gospel Chapel Church of Evanston, 1808 Church St., last week.

A pastor of the church claimed someone forced entry through the front door sometime between 9 p.m. on Tuesday and 7 p.m. on Thursday. The front door was damaged when police arrived.

The police did not find any signs of intrusion inside the church, and the pastor did not find anything missing, Dugan said.
